Stocks posted narrow gains today, with the Dow Jones Industrials outpacing the broader S&P 500 because of outsized advances for a handful of higher priced component companies, including a 2% rise for IBM and a 1.3% jump for United Technologies ( UTX ). The S&P 500 held on for a smaller rise, led by consumer stocks despite below-consensus inventory and sales data. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index finished in the red due to steep declines for Apple ( AAPL ) following investor disappointment with the tech giant's two new iPhone models, triggering a fresh round of analyst downgrades.
